Benintendi Misplay Hands Yanks 4-2 Win

Nothing comes easy for the 2016 Boston Red Sox, as David O’Brien et al remind us on a near-nightly basis. After a dismal road-trip, the Red Sox failed to improve on their record in a series against the Yankees, and now sit at only nine games above .500. The playoff picture in the East is tight […]

Sox Go 5-6 On Biggest Road Trip This Season

If anyone from New England stayed up till one in the morning to watch the Red Sox lose six out of eleven games on the West Coast, then…sorry. However, you were not alone, and you were also not alone if you felt frustration and anxiety as the Sox quietly ducked out of a playoff spot […]

Retirement Looms Large For Big Papi

Here’s a storyline that never seems to get old: once again, David Ortiz, with his bat, carried his Boston Red Sox to another victory. Against former teammate Jake Peavy, Ortiz crushed a 451 foot three-run home run to put the game out of reach for the San Francisco Giants, en route to a 4-0 victory. […]

Hey David ! FIGURE IT OUT.

With a chance to sweep the Yankees and pull to within one game of the Baltimore Orioles for first place in the East, the Red Sox had their $200 million dollar man on the mound last night. Coming out of the break, Sox fans (including myself) were hopeful that David Price had figured out the […]

Rusney Castillo Placed on Outright Waivers

Back in 2014, when the Red Sox signed Cuban native Rusney Castillo to a 7-year, $72.5 million contract, it finally felt like Boston had won something. 2014 was a year many Sox fans would like to forget, but Castillo was something of a bright spot. Castillo joined the big leagues late in the season, played […]

Sox lose in San Fran, but it appears that the Price is finally right.

Last night, you saw the reason why the Red Sox forked over $217 million to David Price this past offseason. In a match-up with one of the very best in the game in Madison Bumgarner, Price was as sharp as he’s been all season long, spotting his fastball and making quick work of an opportunistic […]

Sox Split Series With Orioles; Look Onwards to Toronto

In a four game set with the Orioles, the Red Sox never scored more than ten runs in a game. This is surprising, since the sheer amount of firepower displayed by the Red Sox may have led one to believe that they put up 15 runs per game. Bogaerts did run his hit streak to […]

Red Sox Take Series Against Colorado; 7 Game Road Trip Starts Today

Sox Lose Series in KC; Streaking Cleveland Comes to Boston

Unfortunately, the Red Sox cannot play the Oakland Athletics for 162 games. Boston got a reality check when it ran into a sputtering Kansas City team, posting only eleven runs over three games.

Red Sox Put .500 Firmly In Rearview Mirror; Look to Battle Astros

Three warm nights in early May translated to a romping at Fenway Park for the upstart Red Sox, who outscored the Oakland Athletics 40-15 over three games en route to a sweep. This is a team that is fun to watch on most nights, and if they stay healthy, will be able to challenge the […]

Red Sox Prepared to Take on A’s

After the Red Sox managed to salvage the final game in New York, the second place team will be looking to rebound by playing the Oakland A’s. The Athletics are 14-18, and are coming off two straight losses in Baltimore. The Sox will open the home stand with Clay Buchholz (1-3, 5.71) who will be […]

Is Pablo Sandoval’s Contract the Worst Deal in Red Sox History?

When the Red Sox signed Pablo Sandoval to a 5 year, $95 million contract a year and a half ago Sox nation was felt pretty good about the deal.  Sandoval lacked power, but he was a clutch player who already won 3 world series rings.  Now, a year and a half later, Sandoval’s contract might […]

A Preview of the Suddenly High-Profile Red Sox and White Sox’s Upcoming Series

The Red Sox are flying into Chicago to take on the high-powered White Sox, who boast an 18-8 record, and a 3 game lead in the AL Central. Both teams have won eight of their last ten, and are both coming off of a much-needed day of rest. The White Sox last week, split a […]

What is up with Clay Buchholz?

Clay Buchholz’s time in Boston might just be coming to an end. At least some Red Sox fans hope so. Not that long ago, Buchholz, seemed to have a lot of promise with the Sox and had the potential to be the team’s ace. The number one problem that Buchholz has is health. The guy […]
